Frontotemporal Dementia and Frontal Lobe Syndromes
Damage to the front part of the brain (the frontal lobes) is part of many conditions, including frontotemporal dementia or FTD, also called frontotemporal lobar degeneration. The frontal lobes are important for many major functions including how we plan and organize tasks, our motivation, and how we control a lot of our emotional responses. In this pre-recorded online event we discuss the features of frontal lobe disorders and frontotemporal dementia.
